We all see a cute little puppy or kitten and want to take it home, but much thought should be given before deciding.
Your home could well be affected, as they are house trained, those little accidents on the carpet, and if not dealt with properly can lead to bigger problems.
Kittens, puppies, even babies have a little whoopsie on the carpet and what do we do?
Either we get some tissue or a cloth and just dab it up or we rush out and buy a shop bought product to attempt to remove it.
Meanwhile, what has been spilled on to the carpet has seeped through the carpet and reached the underlay, this then acts like a sponge and soaks up the spillage.
The surface by now may appear to be dry and clean.
Sometimes what you see on the surface of the carpet is only the tip of the iceberg.
Typically if you do visually detect a pet stain it is only a small percentage of what is actually in the carpet
After a while you will forget about the accident on the carpet, but may well start to notice an unpleasant odour.
Even if it doesn’t smell bad today, the smell can return again tomorrow, next month, or next year.
The reason is that when you smell pet urine, you typically do not smell the urine itself, but rather the gasses being created from the bacteria that are feeding on the urine.
If you are able to pull the carpet back like you may find the problem is much worse than you realised.
Pet urine smells sharply of ammonia, which is an irritant to the lungs.
Children are especially vulnerable to negative effects from the smell of pet urine, since their lungs are still developing.
If residue from pet urine is not completely removed from a carpet or rug, the stained area could become a breeding ground for bacteria and fungi, which can be potentially hazardous to humans.
It is difficult to feel good around foul odours. so even if dog urine was not hazardous to human health, it can affect your well-being in many ways.
If you are serious about removing pet urine and odours it is essential that you hire a professional carpet cleaning company
